Question Optoma HD151X Idling


Standard Member
Hi all,

My Optoma has been displaying the "change your lamp" message for a while and, a couple of days ago, stopped working. When I turned it on, it just idled. There was some noise, the fan was idling, but no light. I assumed it was the lamp, so bought and fitted a replacement. The first time I started it, I got light! Unfortunately, it got stuck on "Source not found", which I assumed was the AV amp playing up. Rebooted everything and now I'm back to the idling again :(.

The Power LED shows solid red when in standby - good. When I start the projector, the Lamp and Temp lights show solid red for about 1 second, and the power light flashes for about 2-3 seconds. Then they all go out and we're in idle mode again. At that point, the control panel becomes unresponsive and the only way to turn it off is via the wall socket.

I then took off the main cover and removed quite a bit of dust from both fans. Reassembled everything, plugged it in, same result.

Has anyone seen this before or has any idea what it might be please?
